I installed the Pro Kit springs last week and not real happy with them.
They say 1.6 front and 1.8 in the rear.

I took measuments before and after. I only got .75 in the front and 2 in the rear.
Does anyone know if the front will drop down anymore?
I'm thinking of just going with sportlines because right now it don't even look droped at all.

Well springs do tend to lower a little more as they settle.

But while on the subject from people who already have them, which is probably the better of the two springs, or at least in terms of appearance, Sportlines or the Pro-Kit?

Yea the same with mine.
I have a friend with a stock Mazda 3I that sits lower them mine.
And he noticed last night also that my moms 09 stock LS seems to be lower in the front.

Here is how low i had my last car.
This was a listed 1.4 drop front and rear.
The drop right away was closer to 2 inches.
I don't think they settled much at all.
That's what I was expecting with these also.
That's also the look I want.

I was afraid to lower too low due to the ohio countryside, so i was going to get the pro kit, but if the pro kit doesnt lower enough to be noticeable, ill just go with the sportlines and FE5 shocks/struts and be very careful not to hit bumps lol

what about the pro kit and fe5's? would that be a little more noticeable?
Nope the drop would still be the same. Because the drop is determined by the springs.

I think i'll just stick with the pro kit for a little. Because it does handle a lot better with them. It's just that they didn't lower it a lot.
Then upgrade to either FE5 Shocks or Koni's and Sportllines.
Because I think the FE1 Shocks would be too soft for Sportlines.
